Our Monday Model.
I am working on three things right now: brevity, color-value planes, and light. Actually, I'm always working on light; seeing it, understanding it, painting it. But as it hits an object, it bounces a certain way into the eye based on the planes of the object, the color of the object and, of course, the color of the light.
When one is working to record something like this, the mind is processing massive amounts of information but the artist has to simplify it, organize it and reproduce it in such a way as to render it recognizable using spots of color, brushed onto a piece of cloth with some hair on a stick! In that process, I think the beauty and the power are unleashed by brevity.
